Winter Market event and recent weavings

Hello, friends. Here we are, well into the first week of the year 2020. We have had a bit of snow here in the Monadnocks but it sure is a lovely thing, especially when you can avoid driving to the places that you need to visit. I find myself shuffling up and down Chesham Road quite a bit in the winter to do Post Office runs, library visits, and yarn purchasing expeditions, and this suits me just fine. Here is a pretty picture of Harrisville Pond that I snapped yesterday:

After my walk into town, during which I mailed out a few of my handmade knitting stitch markers to someone special, I spent a lot of time at the loom finishing up some more nine patch kitchen towels. And here they are!

A few of these will be available in my Etsy shop, a few will probably make their way to a League of NH Craftsmen Retail Gallery here in NH, and a few will be with me at my first event of 2020. I will be exhibiting my work at the Bedford Fields Home and Garden Center on February 1, 2020. The proprietors host a Winter Market for local artisans in January and February, and I am looking forward to participating. My husband and I love visiting this garden center; it is perfect for all of your outdoor birding and gardening needs! I hope to put together some sort of “make and take” activity or demonstration for the event. Alas, I cannot bring my floor loom to demonstrate weaving, but perhaps I can muster up something, especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner.

Next up on the loom will be some custom order summer and winter placemats. I will be weaving this pattern in cactus green and natural cottons for my client:

Off to hem up some more towels and get that loom warped. Thanks for stopping in and as always, be well.
